Angels get past A’s in extras

By From page B8 | April 17, 2014

ANAHEIM — Chris Iannetta homered with two outs in the 12th inning against Drew Pomeranz, giving the Los Angeles Angels a 5-4 victory over the Oakland Angels on Wednesday night.

Pomeranz (1-1) retired David Freese on a grounder to second base and Raul Ibanez on a foul pop to the catcher before Iannetta drove the next pitch to center field and just out of the reach of a leaping Craig Gentry, ending Oakland’s four-game winning streak.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia got six scoreless innings out of his much-maligned bullpen, as the Athletics stranded runners in scoring position in the 10th, 11th and 12th.

Joe Smith (1-0), who failed to retire any of the five batters he faced in the eighth inning of the Angels’ 10-9 loss on Tuesday night, pitched a scoreless inning for the victory.
